Communist ‘Baghdad Jim’ McDermott: Ending Obamacare’s Individual Mandate is ‘Not American’

Democrat Congressman Jim McDermott (Commie – WA), earned the name “Baghdad Jim” for his useful idiot status in believing and spewing the anti-American propaganda of Saddam Hussein before he was appropriately sent to Hell, told C-Span’s Washington Journal Tuesday that getting rid of Obamacare’s individual mandate, where government forces individuals to buy only government-approved health care, would somehow be un-American.

“They want to take out the individual mandate somehow – that we think we should have people just riding on the backs of other people in this country. I don’t think that’s – that’s not American,” McDermott said.

No, Baghdad Jim. In a free country, government can’t force people to buy anything — period. For the kind of health care you’re seeking, please move to North Korea. We like freedom here.
